hi. yea. I just booked a 4-day stay to Montreal for New Year’s Eve for a Christmas slash New Years slash 2 year anniversary surprise.
BRING ON THE FOIE, MONTREAL!
The cabins of airplanes are pressurized with an extremely low humidity level of just 4%, largely to reduce the risk of internal corrosion; the only humidity in an airplane cabin comes from other people’s breath. The problem with low humidity, though, is it causes our sinuses to close. This is why you always feel as if you have a slight cold when you fly. For economy passengers, this means mass-produced meals that are frozen and then reconstituted. Even in business class, the meals being served aren’t fresh. While each meal will have been individually prepared by a catering company at the airport instead of mass-produced and purchased in bulk, a business-class customer can still look forward to a meal that is at least several hours old before it has been served.
EWWWW morning airline facts
THE MONTREAL EPISODE ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? I LIVVEEEEEEE.
hours marathoning Parts Unknown and in the first fucking 10 minutes of this episode my entire life has been a failure watching those 2 bastards eating seared foie while sipping rare wine in the middle of a frozen river.
WHY AM I STILL HERE?!
Any reasonable, sentient person who looks at Spain, comes to Spain, eats in Spain, drinks in Spain, they’re going to fall in love. Otherwise, there’s something deeply wrong with you.
I will never not smile when I hear that “th” sound coming from a man speaking a Spain dialect.
morcilla = morthilla
ugh I love itttttt. more Spain episodes, Bourdain. more.
On the plane, I like to read fiction set in the location I’m going to. Fiction is in many ways more useful than a guidebook, because it gives you those little details, a sense of the way a place smells, an emotional sense of the place. It’s good to feel romantic about a destination before you arrive.
